Croatian tennis professional Marin Cilic is committed to make his debut at the ATP World 250 Malaysian Open, Kuala Lumpur from September 21 to 29 despite the issues that he’s been dealing with at present. The Malaysian Open 2013 will take place at the Putra Stadium in Bukit Jalil.
The 18th-ranked player reportedly failed a drug test conducted last month which led him to pull out of the Montreal Masters 2013 tournament last week. However, Cilic said that he failed the test due to high glucose levels, something is not banned by the ATP Tour or the International Tennis Federation (ITF).
The Malaysian Open this year has a direct-entry cut-off of 56 which means that the tournament boasts of a highly competitive field. World number four David Ferrer of Spain, number 9 Stanislas Wawrinka of Switzerland, number 15 Nicolas Almagro of Spain and defending champion Juan Monaco of Argentina are slated to be part of this event.
As for Cilic’s issue, the Malaysian Open organizers stated that though Cilic is currently being investigated, “he is not banned by the ITF or ATP” which means “he is free to enter and play in tournaments.” As of present, Cilic is scheduled to participate at the US Open Championships which starts on August 26.Tennisguru.net in partnership with bet365 offer over 40,000 live streamed events per year.
